Oh No! It‘s Surf vs. the Flying Saucers! Don’t Worry: Jammin’ James Riley and our Specialty Show Hosts Will Protect You!
By Alan Haber – Pure Pop Radio
We’ve got big news for you later this week, about a brand-new lunchtime show premiering next week on Pure Pop Radio, so stay tuned for that.
Meanwhile, something is brewing out there… It may be the battle of the century, with surf coming up against an invasion of flying saucers, but don’t you worry: Jammin’ James Riley has you covered on this week’s all-new edition of Catching a Wave.
In fact, all of our all-new specialty shows this week are on your side, protecting you from everything under the sun that doesn’t keep the beat! Urban Surf Kings kick off this week’s Catching a Wave tonight at 8 pm ET with the aforementioned “Surf vs. the Flying Saucers” and, in the program’s final moments, the Pyramids take you on a “Midnight Run.” It’s another exciting edition of the good time, summertime sounds that Jammin’ James lines up for you every seven days.
This Wednesday at 1 pm ET, Scott McPherson ushers in March 2017 with part two of his survey of the best of new wave sounds on his weekly lunchtime soup-and-sandwich-combo-loving show, The Weird and the Wonderful. The Psychedelic Furs, Split Enz, ABC, Elvis Costello, Bananarama, Thomas Dolby, and Devo are just some of the artists serving up tunes in the Weird and Wonderful kitchen.
Our regular panel of Beatles experts sits around the Things We Said Today microphones this Thursday at 8 pm ET to speak with Piers Hemmingsen, author of The Beatles in Canada: The Origins of Beatlemania, and chat about Paul McCartney recording with Ringo Starr for his upcoming record. Join Ken Michaels, Steve Marinucci, Al Sussman, and Allan Kozinn for another great show.
Listen this week as our sterling lineup of specialty show hosts brings you some terrific entertainment, won’t you? And keep an eye on the watchful skies for flying saucers, okay?
